Several Musictrade members visited Norberg 2004 electronic music festival in 2004 in Sweden. The visitors were inspired both by the versatile and experimental musical lineup of the festival and by its impressive industrial setting (the main venues are massive old iron mine buildings). Of the Musictrade artists present, Electroteque ended up doing an 1-hour DJ gig on the festival but otherwise Musictraders merely enjoyed the music and gathered fresh impressions.

To Norberg 2005 Musictrade came with a full 3 hour showcase of its own original material, featuring artists Doc (Finland), Unknown Forces (Scotland) and Electroteque (Australia). Besides the showcase and other festival activities the Musictrade crew was also engaged on a special field recording project. The idea was to collect field audio material from different environments and situations and later on share the material and work it into an album. Recordings were made both in Norberg itself during the festival and on various locations around the world visited by Musictraders on their way to Norberg and back home. Plenty of interesting field material was captured, and overall the project was a big inspiration for all involved. It took only a month after the festival for this album to materialize, with contributions from five Musictrade artists.
